George

George

Deutschland 2012/2013, TV-Spielfilm

Inhalt

Employing footage material and re-enactments, the film reconstructs the last years of actor Heinrich George: Being one of the most renowned actors of the Weimar Republic, George became so popular that the Nazis wanted to keep him working, despite his numerous Jewish and left-leaning friends. Goebbles personally made sure that he could continue playing, yet in turn he demanded that George appeared in notorious propaganda productions like "Jud Süß" and "Kolberg". Thus deemed an artist supportive of the regime by the Soviets after the war, he was incarcerated in a prisoner camp in Sachsenhausen where he died from a famine edema in 1946.
